Wauwatosa, WI  (June 23, 2011) With more Salvation Army disaster relief teams from Fargo and the Twin Cities en route, staff and volunteers are providing food, water and emotional support in Minot and nearby cities while flood crews scramble to raise levees. With parts of Minot already underwater, the Souris River is expected to crest this weekend. 

“The Salvation Army’s feeding efforts will continue for weeks to come,” said Major Donald Kincaid, Minot Salvation Army administrator. “After the floodwaters recede, we will additionally offer clean-up kits and long-term support.”

Limited financial assistance is and will be available for qualifying households displaced by the flood. For assistance call 701-838-8925.

“The Salvation Army has served in Minot since 1896,” Kincaid said. “This is our town, too. We are committed to serving this community the best we can, for as long as we are needed.”

For any and all flood information not  related to The Salvation Army, call the Ward County Flood Hotline at 701-858-9366.

Monetary donations:

The Minot Salvation Army needs financial support now and in the months ahead to cover the costs of its disaster response. To make a $10 donation, text “MINOT” to 80888 and reply “yes” to the confirmation text. A one-time donation of $10 will be added to your mobile phone bill. Messaging and data rates may apply. For terms, see www.igfn.org/t.   

Donations can also be made online at www.thesalarmy.org, by calling 800-SAL-ARMY (725-2769) or by mailing a check to The Salvation Army, 2445 Prior AVE N, Roseville MN 55113. Be sure to designate your donation “Minot Flood.”

Donations of used Household Goods and Clothing:

Due to the high expense and time demands associated with delivering your gently-used household goods and clothing (gifts-in-kind), The Salvation cannot guarantee that any individual gifts-in-kind donated now will be sent to the disaster area. In time of disaster, our stores fill these needs from existing, pre-sorted stock. By continuing to donate gently-used household goods to your local Salvation Army store, you not only help your community, you help us prepare for future disaster relief needs. To find your nearest drop-off location, please go to www.satruck.org.
